TIPS FOR LASER ENGRAVING JEWELRY-Doris

TIPS FOR LASER ENGRAVING JEWELRY

Laser engraving a piece of jewelry can go far beyond hallmarking. Jewelry manufacturers and retailers can use laser-engraving technology to personalize a piece or add design details that are impossible or time-consuming to create by hand. Whereas hand engraving pushes metal out of the pattern it traces, a laser pulverizes metal into powder that is pulled away by the machine’s exhaust system and can later be sent for refining.

A laser engraving machine can create virtually any shape, texture, pattern, or text—whatever the designer or the client can imagine. The following are tips and tricks for accurate and effective laser marking and engraving for your jewelry business.

Level up.

To make an even line of text or a pattern around the outside or inside of a ring, grab a mini-level to guarantee accuracy. “Place the level on top of the scan head housing to make sure it’s level, then the ring will engrave correctly.”

Stop reflection.

When you are trying to center a ring in preparation for laser engraving, all of the reflection coming off the metal can make this step tricky. To cut the metal’s selectivity, technician suggests placing a non-glossy piece of paper where you will be engraving. “We use a business card for this purpose and it works well every time,”. In addition, reflected light from the laser can damage colored stones, so take care when engraving or marking a finished piece of gem-set jewelry. “For example, if you have a stone-set ring and someone wants to put a date inside the shank near the stone, protect the stone with basic poster putty,” “You can use the putty over and over again.”

Test in brass.

If you’re going to invest in a laser engraving machine, add a bunch of brass blanks to your shopping list. “Sometimes we create different .jpg files and need to test them to make sure we have the correct power and that it will mark deeply enough,”“Instead of practicing on the real thing—especially if it’s a customer’s piece—we test it on the blank to make sure it marks correctly.”

laser-engraving-rings.jpgConsider future sizing.

When laser marking your logo inside of a ring, think ahead so a future sizing won’t destroy it. “When I mark a logo, I make sure it’s in a spot that someone will never have an issue with it down the road.”

Step inside, carefully. When marking the inside of a ring, verify that the laser is focused, and then double check. “If it’s not in focus, it’s not going to mark it correctly,”

“The mark may have a doubling effect or be blurry.”

In addition, check the inside diameter of the ring in two or three spots before laser engraving, as rings are seldom perfectly round. “If it’s a plain band, it’s generally the same all the way around,” “But if it’s a very intricate ring, the diameter may vary. In that case, you should average the measurements and cut all marks at one time. If you try to make one mark, remove the ring, place it back, and then make another mark, they will not line up.”

Fiber laser marker for precious metal processing-Angelina

Fiber laser marker for precious metal processing

We all know that the fiber laser marker mainly mark on the metal.

However, the high power fiber laser marking machine also has the function to cutting.

For some customers who own a small shop maybe have no big budget for the machine.

Then they ask for the fiber laser marking machine to do their work.

This phenomenon is common in precious metal industry.

Such as the gold, silver, brass etc.

They often ask fort he high power, for example 50w and 100w fiber laser marker to cut their products.

Although comparing to those fiber laser cutting machine, the fiber laser marking machine cutting ability is a little weak.

It can still process the metal.

Here share some cutting samples we cut before for customer:

gold cutting sample

Most of the customer ask for the silver and the gold cutting.

For this requirements, we often introduce the 30w fiber laser marker to the customers with a small budget.

Bu the 30w machine speed would be a little lower than the 50w.

if the customer budget is enough , we advise the 50w.

Then it may help save much time for the customer.

For the gold and silver cutting, we usually advise the Ipg laser source rather than the Raycus.

In terms of the metal cutting, the IPG has more advantages than the Raycus.

That is cause the IPG  laser source is more advantageous than the Racyus for long-time processing.

gold cutting samples

Besides, some of the customers would like to process their products successively.

They want to improve the working efficiency.

Then we design the special equipment for them:

special equipment for the gold cutting

This equipment could help the customer process the products all the time.

Their working principle is mark-stop-mark-stop.

This equipment is controlled by the software.

Laser engraving applications

As we known,laser engraving beyond a doubt is the most flexible and simple means of direct part identification or serialization available today. The ability to mark, deep engrave or cut  a host of different materials by simply changing various parameters.And offers an unsurpassed control, flexibility, quality and speed versus other types of marking methods.

Several factors are to adjust the engraving effect. Such as power output, number of passes, number of pulses and, frequency.

Firstly, Surface mark:

It is ideal when marking on coatings without penetrating through, such as chrome, nickel, gold, and silver etc.

Secondly, Surface coloring:

Most common when marking on titanium or stainless steel.

Thirdly,Deep engraving:

Utilizing a high power laser this process vaporizes a material to engrave into the base metal. Most common in plastic injection molds, Jewelry making, and stamping dies.

Fourthly, Laser Cutting:

it is ideal to cut intricate designs in all metal alloys including precious and non-precious alloys, firearms slides, lower receivers, medical devices and endoscopes.

Finally, Ablation:

Removing surface treatments to create translucent back round without damaging the base material.It is widely in backlit material processing such as backlit buttons.

A variety of textures, depths, and shadings from black to white are no problem. This software allows the user to import an image from many different graphics and CAD file types, then separate areas of the image into regions. Each region can then have a texture, depth or shading applied to it as easy as “coloring in a coloring book.”

Laser engraving is a great tool for many different materials. Including:  aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, copper, iron, brass, exotic metals and composites. Images can be engraved before or after custom coating

Laser Engraving is the Way-laser engraving on firearms

It is important when selecting a laser engraving system for marking firearms to make sure it meets the ATF Guidelines for depth and size requirements. Selecting the wrong configuration can result in the inability to meet these requirements.

XTLASER’s FiberCube Laser Engraving Systems can achieve the necessary size and depth. “This machine is perfect for engraving firearms, due to the very small and detailed engravings at depths up to 0.040 in.(1mm),”  “Also, the engravings can be complete very quickly depending on the size and complexity of the engraving. In addition to being faster, a laser beam is much smaller than a tool bit, so it also looks crisper and cleaner than traditional methods of engraving. This tool never wears out, breaks or gets dull causing improper depth or size.”

The Laser Engraving System on firearms.

Also empowers firearms manufacturers and enthusiasts to personalize their guns. Customization for sportsmen, first res ponders and veterans provide a unique way to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Even complex images can be accurately render using laser engraving technologies, produce crisp lines, incredible detail and beautiful craftsmanship.


XTLASER’s Laser Engraving Software was developed exclusively for the firearms

industry through hundreds of applications and requests by

manufacturers and aftermarket retailers. Its purpose was to provide an

easy-to-use, straightforward method to create amazing graphics and visual effects on

all types of firearms as well as other items.

A variety of textures, depths, and shadings from black to white are supplied in the standard package. This software allows the user to import an image from many different graphics and CAD file types then separate areas of the image into regions. Each region can then have a texture, depth or shading applied to it as easy as “coloring in a coloring book.”

Patterns and effects are only limited by the user’s imagination and with the recent introduction of XTLASER’s “Color Effect” module some materials such as stainless steel can have actual colors applied in this “paint by numbers” method. Imagine the American Flag draped on the slide of your gun in actual, Red, White and Blue or the “Guns and Roses” image with actual “red roses.”

XTLASER’s product line with Marking Software is the perfect solution for any arena of the firearms and tactical weapons industry.Three sizes are currently available, the original  (standard size), the  Compact (for smaller applications) and the new  (for larger applications). They are all application specific and depend on the volume and size of the parts to be mark all the way to accommodating rifle barrels and receivers.

Operator tasks are also simple, a part is load into the system,

if the programmable focus adjustment available focus set automatically.

Otherwise it manually set with the dual focus alignment diodes, the red laser

trace feature draws a visible red box showing the location of the image to be laser,

either the part can be move into that location or the location itself can be move with

the software (with the appropriate fixture, no alignment is necessary).

The safety door is then close and the part is mark.
